The Important Things

The men's and women's NCAA basketball tournaments now seem unimportant next to the tragedy of a lost life. Jason Ray, the 21-year-old student who played Rameses, the Carolina ram mascot, was struck by a car the afternoon of the men's eastern regional game. He died three days later from his injuries. My deep sympathies go to his family, his friends, and the UNC and Chapel Hill communities he served.

A terrible tragedy like this truly does make us stop and consider what things are most important in life. To me, they are faith, family, and friends. I'm saddened by this news, and offer a prayer for this young man and his family.
